Number of British paedophiles may be far higher than thought
National Crime Agency chief says new figure is seven times greater than earlier estimate
Gosh, how have they worked this out?
The number of Britons with a sexual interest in children may be seven times higher than previously thought, the head of the National Crime Agency has said.
Lynne Owens said the revelation came after investigators scoured through sites for paedophiles on the dark web, finding an estimated 144,000 accounts linked to British people.
Err, yes. Very accurate indeed. So what’s actually going on here?
She is calling for £2.7bn over three years to boost the fight against serious and organised crime.
Ah, bureaucracy calling for larger budget. Surprise!
